  1. That looks like so much fun. Just playing a little hockey in the snow. Is there anything better? New Leafs unis look VERY Panthers-esque. Can't say I'm a huge fan. Would be better if they kept it more true to a throwback. This just looks like a weird Panthers-Habs-Leafs hybrid. Edit: I like the leafs jersey in the vacuum, I mean it's a nice looking hockey uni, don't get me wrong, but the fact that it comes so soon after the Panthers new look was released, kind of just looks like a repurposing of that template.
  2. Wow, its like someone messed with the colors in photoshop to make it more "washed out" in the first one. I can't say I'm a huge fan of the Islanders unis due to all of the jersey-->pants-->socks striping inconsistencies and a kind of boring outdated logo, But the difference here is just so striking. Royal blue looks great against the white and yellow. The Penguins unis continue to look more beautiful every time that I see them. The way the yellow sleeves look on the white jersey base is so nice, i think it's now one of the best road looks in the league, even with the annoying mismatched sock stripes.
  3. Well, they do have a black alternate jersey. What they should do is take the breezers, helmets, and equipment from that set, and pair it with the blue jerseys and socks from the home set. This would immediately distinguish them from the maple leafs without actually having to rebrand. Surprisingly there is not another team in the league that wears royal blue jerseys with black pants. So they'd have that going for them right off the bat. Then there's the issue of the generic logos, but that's an issue that isn't as easily solved, and it seems like they aren't going to change any time soon considering the team's current success and management's apparent desire to make them look classic like the Red Wings. There seemed to be an initial backlash to Florida's new look around these parts, but I think they are amazing. Totally agree with the above posters commenting on how good the jerseys look with the navy pants and equipment. Excellent color balance.
  4. It's hard to even call it "design taste" at this point. It's just going with what is trendy for recruiting future players and for getting current players pumped. I doubt Petrino is really taking in to mind the aestheic benefits of how the Lousville logo will look as a inverted-color silhouette against red chrome. I thought there was an interesting bit of dialogue in I believe the 2nd episode of the show Last Chance U on Netflix. The offensive coordinator is talking to one of the players, discussing what uniforms they will go with for one of the big games in the series. They both seem to be in agreement that they want to wear the white jerseys with chrome to face their rivals. It was treated more as a reward for the players that 1. they get to wear jerseys with chrome and 2. that they get to have input in choosing what they wear for that game. The players all seemed to love it, but all i could think about the entire time was the terrible too-tight-fitting Adidas jersey cut and how illegible the numbers were. What we see as Gimmicks , the players see as Badass.
  5. colors, yes. uniforms, no. look way too much like the Knicks. The 90s streaking sun unis are much more fun, appropriate, and have some character
  6. The Jekyll and Hyde for Oregon continues. That looks clean. They have had about 3 incredibly beautiful looks this year, and about 3 awful ones, and the good/bad seems to alternate weeks...
  7. Yes agreed, they also happen to look incredibly good in the yellow-purple-yellow, though. A bit better than the white helmets IMO but this is a nice change of pace.
  8. Some of these particular images might not be totally true to the color-- this game was played in a heavy rain storm. The soaking wet fabric gives the bottom two images the illusion that it is a shade of brown-- in the very top image, the helmet and pants look more like the actual shade of maroon.
  9. yes I think it will be a patch on the jerseys, but they also have been using this logo all over the merchandise you can get on the online store. there is actually a really extensive online store for this team already, i was fairly surprised myself at the t-shirt selection especially. may or may not have purchased a couple http://www.roadrunnersgear.com/ The unis are very clean. The copper is a nice touch that separates the overall feel from the Coyotes.
  10. Yeah, tomorrow's game might be the worst color rush yet. I mean Jags-Titans was absolutely hideous..... but at least they wore, y'know, colors. At least they tried. 49ers in all gold vs. Cardinals in all-red (throwbacks, not this piping template) = much more interesting.
  11. Agree with all of you guys ripping the new bucs logo lol, it seems just like such an unneccessary change to make. Old logo was a modern classic. That said, why not throw something positive out there..... i've always LOVED how the facemask looks on the current helmet when combined with the pewter base. not really sure if it's technically considered "chrome", it's like a chrome-satin combo, but it has a finish on it that no other helmet in the league has, and i think it works well with the pewter. The rest of the uniform is a trainwreck, unfortunately.
  12. We'll see. I think the coyotes will surprise some people this year. Tippett was an assistant for Team North America and seems to have started to let the young guys open up the rink with some more creative and skilled play. but yeah the Central is stacked. Either way. Winning is the best marketing. That's why i personally don't really care what they do with these letters and Coyotes 2.0 and such. no matter how they position it, people aren't going to forget about the past 19 years of mediocrity, especially the past decade of drama. the ownership is looking for a fresh start with the whole marketing thing, and if the team becomes good in the next year or two, then it really will be a fresh start overall, not just "all talk". with our pipeline of talent i.e. Domi Duclair Strome Dvorak Chycrun Fischer Crouse Deangelo i really think the future is bright. If they continue to lose, they will look very very stupid. it's bold.
  13. should be a better on-ice product this year, at least. a lot of exciting young skilled guys. I don't really care about the marketing strategy as long as the team is winning, which ultimately is what people's butts in the seats in the valley. probably will be the best on-ice product since 2012 WCF year. also the commercials they are releasing with Doan, Domi, etc are pretty cool, IMO
  14. It does really resemble Navy's look when they wore the custom-painted helmets with battleships on them, though. The dark blue ones with dark grey trim and yellow piping. edit: edit 2: oregon also just kind of looks like west virginia, lol.
  15. Hah i agree with most of your posts, but gotta disagree strongly here. navy/black is an awful combination IMO and this uni manages to muddle Oregon's brand even more, which i didn't even think was possible. black leotard bottom + navy tops = bad news. looks like a laundry mistake or something.
